Atlanta Financial and Biggers Blackmon Join Forces

AFA
November 14, 2018

We are thrilled to announce that Biggers Blackmon, LLC, a wealth management firm formerly with offices in Eufaula, AL, and Atlanta, GA, will be joining our operations. The principals of the two firms came to know each other through a mutual association with Commonwealth Financial Services and enjoy a similar approach towards operations and customer satisfaction. Combined, we will unite more than 50 years of financial advisory services.

“This affiliation is a great move for the clients of both firms,” said AFA co-founder and partner Cathy Miller.

“We’re better together and our clients will reap the rewards in terms of more efficient operations, expanded customer service and, in some instances, reduced trading costs,” elaborated Biggers Blackmon founder Janis Biggers.

Biggers Blackmon was founded by Janis Biggers in 1992. Biggers’s experience with a big-four accounting firm as well as in financial operations management with an agri-business company paved the way for the formation of her wealth management practice.

As part of the combined efforts, partner Chris Blackmon will be moving to the current AFA offices in Atlanta and Chris and Janis will continue to see clients by appointment in Eufaula.

We look forward to working together towards “Making Life’s Journey Richer” for our clients.
